Brianna, a two-year-old Labrador Retriever mix, and her pup Brooklee were homeless strays when they were brought to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on April 30th. While a pup doesn’t have a problem getting a rescue commitment, an adult black dog is much more problematic, and all the more so when that dog has heartworms like Brianna had.
Home At Last Dog Rescue in Pennsylvania wanted to add both Brianna and Brooklee to their rescue, but needed Brianna’s heartworms treated first. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, requested RADAR’s help on June 1st. We agreed to help, and Brianna had her heartworm treatment on June 9th.
“Brianna is a sweet-tempered calm girl,” Susan told us. “She walks gently on a leash and lies contently at your feet when you sit down. She greets other dogs and cats politely. Brianna is the right size for cuddling in your lap or taking car rides; she prefers anything just to be with you. Quiet, calm, and appreciative of any attention, her ideal family would be where she can be doted on and feel safe.” Be sure to view more photos in Brianna’s gallery.
RADAR paid all of Brianna’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $243.
UPDATE! All funds for Brianna have been raised! Thank you!
While RADAR is no longer asking for donations for our nonprofit, we ask that you check out some of our rescue partners and make a donation to one or more of them.
